That's weird. Kirkus Maximus will probably have an answer — but until then, I believe I will do some workshop reviewing soon. I have participated very little so far.

Funny, I realize not only did I miss something obvious before posting this--but I posted it in the wrong area. I am on top of it today.

I did originally mistype it as Nevermind.

I was in my twenties before I realized it really was two seperate words.  Thanks Nirvana.

@Avery--me, too. Makes me feel like a complete asshat every time I write it as one word, too.

Wait...it's two words? Next you're going to tell me that kindergarden isn't really a garden.

I think it sort of feels better to see it as one word.

Raelyn--kindergarten might be a garden, but only if...well, I'll put it this way: are you familiar with the B-movie Hotel Hell?

No... but something tells me to be weary of looking it up.

Haha, maybe. The concept sounds frightening, but the movie is done so poorly it's just funny. They kill and plant people, and the heads talk. Or something...it's been awhile.

The concept alone makes me laugh. On a slightly related tangent: the movie Frayed. It's the epitome of a movie that's 'so bad it's good'.

Yeah, I typed that and realized that I was overstating when I said it "sounded" frightening.

My favorite "so bad it's good" is Thankskilling. It's about a turkey that goes on a killing rampage. A talking turkey that goes on a killing rampage. And at different points in the movie: drives a car, has sex with a woman, poses as the sherrif, and shoots a gun. A fucking turkey. The tagline was (I shit you not) "Gobble gobble, mother fucker".

Hahaha.  That's awesome.  That's as bad as those 80's movies, "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes"

How dare you? That's a classic

Thankskilling is a classic in it's own right. I mean, a turkey doing a chick doggie style, AFTER killing the man that was doing her--and she doesn't notice? First off, well hung turkey. Second...how is that NOT classic?

If you have Amazon Prime you can stream Thankskilling.  They also have Thankskilling 2.  But I think the one that most piques my interest is Gingerdead Man 2:  Passion of the Crust.  It has Gary Busey, and how can that not be good?

Haha, I did not know there were sequels to either of those! I remember reading that there was another unrelated movie about a killer turkey somewhere...I need to look that up.

A few years ago i had a realization, My mobile phone couldn't write nevermind on predictive text. But its such a common word i thought... that's ridiculous... i deduced it must be two words because that's the only way it'd let me text it. ah well nevermind :P

It is one word if you're talking about the album.
